Field Trip -Ft. Walton

September 9 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm

Saturday, September 9, Ft. Walton. 

Lucy & Bob Duncan will lead the group to impoundments in the Ft. Walton area looking for shorebirds and early migrant songbirds. If you own a spotting scope, be sure to bring it. 

We hope to see Black-bellied Plovers in breeding plumage, and possibly Pectoral and Buff-breasted Sandpipers. Also with luck, we might see Upland Sandpipers, Black-necked Stilts and several species of “peeps.” Expect easy walking.

We plan to eat lunch at a restaurant. Meet at 7:30 a.m. in the Office Depot parking lot across from the hospital in Gulf Breeze (1155 Gulf Breeze Parkway). We plan to return by mid-afternoon.

Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated. All experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Sun­screen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips.

Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or after­shave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it. Carpooling is encouraged.

Questions? Call Lucy Duncan at 932-4792 or email her at town_point@bellsouth.net.
